Great news from Auckland as Burgess joins The Superyacht Gathering as a major sponsor.
Burgess will partner with The Superyacht Gathering for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 editions., including hosting an exclusive VIP event in 2019 on board their 60m charter yacht, Dream, which is in the South Pacific for the season.
Widely respected within the international superyacht industry, the Burgess name needs no introduction. Burgess was built on a love of yachting. Founded in 1975 by Nigel Burgess, renowned sailor and worldwide single-handed ocean racer, Burgess is a world-leading superyacht brokerage house with a wide network, specialist team and expert knowledge. With 13 offices globally positioned from Tokyo through to Beverly Hills, and the only full service 360-degree agency, Burgess is perfectly positioned to guide clients through their superyacht journey.
Known for always staying one step ahead of the market and recognising the significance of the South Pacific region, supporting The Superyacht Gathering was a positive step for Burgess.
“We are delighted to support this new initiative,” says Jonathan Beckett, Burgess CEO. “The superyacht industry is entering a very exciting time, and with this we are working with a far broader range of clients from a wider geographic area than ever before. The Asia Pacific region is one of our main focuses moving forward and with this new partnership we hope to help educate, support and grow the industry in this beautiful part of the world, ahead of the 2021 America’s Cup.”
“Burgess shares our passion for inspiring creativity and change within the superyacht industry and we are looking forward to working with Jonathan Beckett and the team over the next three years and beyond,” says Linda Berry, Managing Director of The Superyacht Gathering. “This is a great fit, and I am proud to have such a hugely successful company putting their confidence and financial support behind Ellie and I and the Auckland edition of The Superyacht Gathering.”
Held over three days, The Superyacht Gathering is an immersive experience-based event. The inaugural event will be held in beautiful Auckland, New Zealand, and will be three days of experiences, camaraderie and sharing of knowledge hosted by some of the superyacht industry's most passionate people. It will play an important role in building a community around superyachts in the lead up to, and including, the America’s Cup 2021, and showcase the world of superyachts to the South Pacific’s huge pool of potential owners, charterers and visitors.
